How Obama is unraveling Reagan Republicanism - Salon.com:
There was a time when ' political parties ' were considered as the Dark Continent because political scientists did not consider as a subject fit for serious attention. Not so now. Political party has, now, acquired centre stage in the study of Political Science. Abraham Lincoln's Republican Party has given way to Ronald Reagan's Republican Party. The Republicans fear that the White House is trying to ' annihilate them ' and ' shove (them) in the dustbin of history'. Same is the case in India where the so called liberal-secular and leftist parties in cohort with liberal-secular intellectuals & media are trying to shove BJP into the dustbin of history.
